[Ed. – Trump’s best asset in San Antonio: the hatred of Joaquin Castro. It’s like a built-in cosmic reaction at this point. Attack Trump, end up landing punches on your own jaw.]
Rep. Joaquin Castro’s plan to shame a group of donors to President Trump is having the opposite effect.
One of the individuals named by the Texas Democrat estimates that the lawmaker’s actions have spurred donors to give more than $1 million toward Trump’s reelection effort in recent days.
H. Bowman told the Washington Examiner his fellow members of “Texas 44,” as the San Antonio-based donors refer to themselves, have been on a fundraising frenzy since Castro tweeted about them on Monday, “Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.'” …
“My phone’s been lit up for two days with calls from many of the Texas 44 and others of our friends here in Texas who are outraged by Castro’s comments,” Bowman said.
